Olsson is absolutely key for us this year, and i'd like to think he has been spoken to by the management with a view to ensuring that, from a financial point of view at least, he is not looking to leave.
I still rate Garrido, but obviously a long way behind Olsson. To be fair however, if we did lose Olsson earlier on in this window and we signed Bertrand, I wouldn't have been to upset about that. He is class.
Now however, if we do lose Olsson, Garrido may be the only option as all the classy LB's are getting snapped up!
Strange that at 24 he's still seemingly happy to be loaned out. With Felipe Luis coming in and Azpilicueta as backup, he's clearly never going to make the grade at Stamford Bridge – would've thought that Southampton would use some of their new-found wealth to tie up permanent deals for quality replacements. Strange.
